The Imperial War Museum prepares to reopen its doors

London Live has been given a preview of what visitors will see when they finally return to the Imperial War Museum in Lambeth later this month.

The attraction will reopen on 19 May with a large-scale artwork by the internationally renowned Chinese artist, Ai Weiwei.

For the first time in the history of the building, the atrium has been given in its entirety to an artist.

The work, titled ‘History Of Bombs’ explores migration and conflict as a cause for the movement of people across the world.

Meanwhile the IWM Churchill War Rooms will take a closer inspection at The Blitz.
